Leigh Corbin at around mile 90. She would hit a low point (among lows) at mile 95.
Oh wow, Badwater was an amazing experience in all senses of the word -- the good, the bad and the bizarre.
Will be doing a story on Leigh Corbin, who I helped crew and pace, that is set to appear Friday afternoon on the Orange County Register Web site and in the newspaper on Saturday. I have a lot to absorb and a lot to write about.
All I can say now is that every ultrarunner should make it a point to be involved in this race somehow, someday as a runner or crew member. It's truly a one-of-a-kind deal and I am thankful I was able to play a small part in this incredible 135-mile test of the human spirit this year.
I am so proud of Leigh and our crew and all the other runners!
I also am glad to be back home, where the weather is relatively mild.
Leigh earned the coveted Badwater belt buckle by finishing in 44 hours and 17 minutes. The cutoff for earning a buckle was 46 hours.
